IT’S THE NEAR-FUTURE A new revolution has spread across the human landscape. The Biolution and its flood of technology have changed almost every aspect of life. Also changed, is the face of terrorism.
Throughout his life, Jonathan Kortel always sensed he was different, but never imagined how different, until two rival factions of a secret group called the Tels approach him out of the shadows of government. He has a gift that could change his life, and possibly the world, forever.
This is his story. A battle for the loyalty of a man who could change the course of human evolution. And the struggle inside this man as he comes to terms with his destiny. Deeply intriguing and powerfully suspenseful, Paul Black has created a future described as “one of the best science fiction novels” by Marilyn Meredith of Writer’s Digest. Part X-Files, part cyber-thriller, Paul Black unveils a dark and compelling view of a world.
Jonathan hung back, soaking in the energy of the main floor. Dancers were spinning or hanging, and the whole place undulated to the intense bass rhythms of the latest chart risers from Africa, Cuba and the Pacific Rim. Liquid Courage was like a circus gone horribly wrong. It occupied the space between reality and fantasy. Beautiful women hung in the air, their bodies floating, and nothing more than crystal sequins covered what the imagination already had seen. The floor dancers intertwined themselves around men and women who where either riding or drunk. Everyone’s chip cards had already been swiped at the door, so freedom ruled.
